"We were thrilled to have Yewande visit our students virtually. She was engaging with the students and even virtually had a presence that helped them to be focused as she taught them about the writing process. Yewande read her book, Sade, We're Moving to Canada and asked questions along the way to get them to think about how Sade felt. Her book was relatable to many of our students and had them wanting to read more of her books! It was a pleasure to have you visit as part of our I Read Canadian Day. You were fantastic and the students and teachers loved having you! Thank you, Yewande."
